Partnership species are animals and plants listed as threatened in New South Wales that have less than 10% of their distribution (i.e. the area in which the species is found) in this state.
This document outlines how NSW Government’s Saving our Species (SoS) program creates conservation strategies for ensuring the survival of partnership species.
The SoS program provides a framework for prioritising investment in threatened species and ecological communities in New South Wales, based on a cost-benefit approach.
The aim of the program is to develop targeted strategies for managing threatened plants and animals, ecological communities and key threatening processes using the best available information.
